general, another woman, a shirtless fbi agent, a secret e-mail account and more than the story than the best hollywood screenwriters couldn't dream up. ammanoffer, listen, not making light of it, a serious story involving national defense of national security, possibly, but lay this out for us. >> reporter: hey, brian. i got to tell you, even for a washington scape dal, this has become kind of a emic sex scandal in a town used to seeing sex scape dal just about every year or so let me walk you through who the players are so you can begin to follow the cast of characters here and what the national security stakes are in all of this. start with jill kelly. she is the woman at the center of the web. she is the tampa socialite allegedly e-mailing with general john allen, he is the top commander in afghanistan for u.s. military forces. those e-mails, some 30,000 pages worth worth, according to the fbi, were apparently possibly inappropriate in nature, indicating some kind of relationship between allen and jill kelley, but jill kelley also raised the eyebrows of paula broadwell. paula broadwe

. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed, and i'm going to let director muller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i've said before. general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan and as head of the cia. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of cia with respect to this personal matter that he is now dealing with with his family and with his wife, and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country an extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done, and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a sing the side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. you know, again, i think you're going to have to talk to the fbi in terms o

a romantic rival. meanwhile, there's an unnamed fbi agent involved in all of this. apparently that kelley had approached and asked for his help in dealing with these anonymous e-mails. this agent also apparently became obsessed with jill kelley and was orderred off the investigation. at one point, he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. this thing is sprawling and confu confusing. a lot of possible ini did cessions. defense officials today are denying there was any affair here between general john allen and jill kelley and saying some of the descriptions of these e-mails are mischaracterized. there's still a lot we don't know. >> it this is getting bigger. this is a much bigger story. more will be revealed. thank you very much, eamon. much of the evidence the fbi is uncovering is coming from a shared gmail account where the parties log in separately and read drafted e-mails that were never sent. those drafts were deleted, but they were still retrieved by the government. that's very interesting. they weren't even sent. so whether it's for business or personal, do we ha

ceo of the company, what is the right thing to do, to go directly to the fbi and the authorities or there are some ceos that don't want to do that because they don't want their customers to know they've been hacked. >> it's a hard decision. i don't think the right answer is that you have to go to the fbi in every single case. but what ceos should recognize is there are some people in the government who can help out. the fbi has a lot of capacity and they could help mitigate the overall risk to some of these cyber intrusions. department of homeland security with the department of defense can be helpful. usually in one of the attacks the first attack you discover is not really what you should be worried about. meanwhile all of your intellectual property flows out the door for two years or secret information about transactions you may be working on is going to another country or another firm. if you see one incident it's worth it as a leader to take it sear yuzly and probably go to the fbi. >> should you assume everything in your e-mail is being read by somebody else? >> you should not

investigator with a specialty in forged documents. she has trained fbi agents. did you ask for copies of those documents? >> yes. >> and what did you find? >> when i looked at the assignment of mortgage, and this is the assignment, a copy from my case, i looked at even the date they put in, which was 10/17/2008, was several months after they sued me for foreclosure. so what they were saying to the court was, "we sued her in july of 2008, and we acquired this mortgage in october of 2008." it made absolutely no sense. >> curious, she used her legal training to go online and researched 10,000 mortgages. >> then i began to find the strange signatures. >> one of the strangest signatures belonged to the bank vice president who'd signed szymoniak's newly discovered mortgage documents. the name is linda green, but on thousands of other mortgages, the style of green's signature changed a lot, and even more remarkable, szymoniak found that linda green was vice president of 20 banks all at the same time. >> all within the same week. i mean, this is a very, very active person. >> where did all those

involved here. we're seeing there is possibly -- at least the fbi was suggesting -- that some of this libyan information about where the cia was involved and is a huge controversy now as to whether or not there were some libyan militia people who had been arrested. she shouldn't be talking about this, his mistress, in public. these are critical issues. there is just consistency, as the code said. >> i think we all get that aspect of it. jeff, certainly what she knew, what might have been told, the e-mails, as some people have pointed out, sort of disqualifies petraeus from the job already because of what he was talking about allegedly. but reverend, i want to ask you this -- there's the morality of it, but is it our business from a business perspective? >> brian, that's a great question. you know, ross perot, a great businessman, said years ago that he would never hire an adulterer because he figured out that if a man would lie to his own mate, he wouldn't have any problem lying to his employer. i think we ought to be compassionate here and realize none of us is immune from this sort

himself worked at intrinsic as well as martoma. he was arrested by the fbi this morning at his florida home, we're told, but the two of them worked at cr intrinsic. one reason i'm told cohen is is upset today or as of yesterday is that cr intrinsic was not just an isolated unit, it provided research and trading for other parts of the firm, not just what they were doing specifically. it's very troubling information for the firm and for cohen as well and i agree. it would seem to be another shoe to drop in this ongoing investigation. >> let's also be clear, kate, that neither mr. cohen nor sac itself with accused of any wrong doing. this is a gentleman who works for that unit. we have scott cohn on the phone with us. scott has covered most of the big high profile insider trading cases over the last several years. good to have you on. this is an aggressive u.s. attorney, right? he doesn't mess around. since 2009, he's brought some 72 cases of insider trading. right? >> right. it's worth noting these inv investigations predate him. we're seeing a lot of these investigations being wrapped u

out of the fbi. you probably have seen this. and says here, the fbi withheld findings about petraeus' affair from the white house and congressional leaders because the agency considered them the result of the criminal investigation that never reached the threshold of an intelligence probe. that's what they are saying. that's what the justice is saying, justice department. do you buy that? >> absolutely not. absolutely ridiculous. put congress aside for one moment. the president of the united states is entitled to know a key member of his foreign policy team, head of the cia, general petraeus is more of a player than any other cia director i'm aware of. he was sent around the world negotiating agreement was countries because of his vast military experience. thought you have a key player be under a cloud, ethical cloud, possibly subject to blackmail and intimidation. the -- attorney general and the fbi director certainly attorney general had the absolute obligation to tell that to the president and let him decide what he wanted to do. to me, that's -- this is not -- just a matter of wh

-mails. the fbi is apparently received 30,000 pages of e-mails between the two that were potentially inappropriate there. but kelly's relationship, whatever it was, with john allen, apparently also caused some concern with paula broadwell. broadwell is the biographer of general david petraeus, who has admitted now to having an affair with the cia director. that's brought down his career. broadwell apparently felt that jill kelly's attentions to petraeus and her social relationship with him might be a threat to her up relationship and apparently cement some e-mails to kelly. we are not clear at all on what those e-mails were all about, guys. but one of the interesting things here is the technique that broadwell and petraeus used to hide the existence of their e-mail correspondence, they opened up anonymous g mail accounts under fictitious names i and simply sent draft e-mails, compose a draft e-mail and not send it, then the other party could check that e-mail account later and find that draft e-mail and read it and delete it without actually sending it and caution the e-mail trace th
